Live music is an eruption of life. A feast for the senses. A way to escape the monotony of everyday life and merge into a crowd of friendly strangers, until all that’s left is a single unit. A sweat-soaked entity that not only sways to the music, but to thousands of heartbeats pulsing in unison.
For music lovers, this is the ultimate freedom. Deadlines, emails, and other distractions suddenly seem far away when someone pours their soul out on stage. Live music is our medicine. It's simultaneously sin and salvation. But today, it’s the forbidden fruit.
After all, both life and lives are about closeness. Oneness. Skin on skin. Blurring bodily lines. Things that are inherently beautiful, but have no place in an era ruled by distance. So we have to wait. As long as it takes.
Because soon enough, we’ll gather again. The next life will always bring the next live. And when that happens, we'll be ready.
Together with a number of AB-ambassadors, We are very much looking forward to intense live moments - how ever far in the future they may lie. Ayco Duyster, DVTCH NORRIS, Blu Samu, Benoît Do Quang (A$IAN ROCKY), bar manager Grâce Kamashi and production assistant/tour manager Yacoba Corral Davalos already dream of a first live concert in this video.
